    Reverse the Music Cuts

    "The University of Adelaide says State Government funding cuts have forced it to cut all its vocational music courses in 2015."   From this article in Crikey's Daily Review, 15 August 2014

    These cuts, which seem to result from a failure of the State Government and the University to reach agreement about funding levels, will mean a serious reduction in musical education opportunities in South Australia. Not only do the courses provide a lot of vocational training to make young musicians industry-ready, they also form an important pathway for students into university-level music study.

    Between the immediate loss of these courses and the loss of potential students for the remaining offerings, these are nervous times for the future of the Elder Conservatorium of Music as a whole.

    But the situation is not irreversible.

    Please take a moment to send an email to the Premier, Ministers, Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean asking them to re-open discussions and find a way to safeguard music in SA.

    All emails sent are confidential except to the recipient, the sender and our branch office. You can chose which of the listed recipients will receive your email.

  3. Little shift in gender disparity in higher ed

    Posted 16 September 2014 by Jeannie Rea (Women)

    There has been little shift for some time in the gender disparity in higher education careers and studies. In some areas gender equity has deteriorated. The proportion of women vice chancellors has fallen to 20%, just eight out of 39. It had climbed to one third a few years ago. And just the second woman to head up a ‘Group of 8’ University, starts at Monash this September.

    There has been little shift in the proportion of women academics still hovering around 44%, and women are still less than one third of the professorial class, but now at least more than one quarter. While women are two thirds of general and professional staff, and have made significant inroads into senior positions (45%), there does not seem to be any recent gains. Women still predominate in lower levels and more insecure jobs across all
